Become a Volunteer

And if you want to do more for the Kurdish issue and diaspora communities, you can join us as a volunteer!

The Kurdish Institute works with a small team of part-time staff members, assisted by the chairman of the Board of Directors.

We outsource a number of very specific tasks to external professionals. However, a large part of our work depends on you, our highly valued volunteers!

The Kurdish Institute calls on volunteers for:
-logistical tasks during activities (information stands, reception, bar, kitchen, transport, sound, … )
-promotion (flyers, distributing posters, social media, … )
-translations (written and/or spoken during info activities)
-help in the library and the documentation centre (registration, filing, … )
-lay-out of flyers and other expenses

Finally, a very special category of volunteers are our “substantive employees”, in particular our editors (who contribute to our website and publications) and our “guest speakers” (the various experts who provide presentations for us). We are happy to help new content employees with customized support.
